    That was the pump I was using. I used to love it because it's so small and light and really gets good pressure. The misadventure was with a 48 mm Presta valve on Shimano 105 rims (so fairly deep...

    One pump, one tube, one patch kit, one cellphone. Worked just fine until the (Lezyne) pump decided to unscrew the valve from the spare tube -- twice -- as I was pumping up the tire at the end of the...

    I do have a trainer, and I actually put the bike on it for the first time last week. I managed a whole half hour of riding before I got bored.

    And then I got sick.

    It's all about the bathroom breaks for me. I only have a couple of jerseys with full zips, so switching to bibs would involve a whole new investment in full-zip jerseys, which just doesn't seem...

    I have the bottom of the range Garmin (200), which is perfect as a computer that tells me how fast I'm going, how far I've gone and what my average speed is, which are the only things I really want...

    More miles than last year, fewer miles than next year. Unless something goes wrong, of course.

    Another vote for crazyguyonabike.com. Read and drool about all the trips you want to do.

    I rode 4000 km, more or less, and plan more for next year. One metric century, no imperials. Managed not to buy any bikes, but do own an indecently large number of shorts and jerseys.

    Big Island is a beautiful place to bike. Did you get inland as well? And which company was it?

    All and any train/tram/streetcar tracks are vicious. They just jump out and grab your wheel when you are thinking of something else.

    Glad you, and presumably the bike, survived the ambush.

    Girl???

    Not wishing to be too much of a pain, boyo, but us lot sort of prefer not to be called 'girl'.

    Thank you for listening.

    Age 55 female, and I have never managed either a pull up or a push up. Closest I came was a couple of years back after six months of twice-weekly working out with a personal trainer.

    Outer Banks? If you want an organized tour look at Carolina Tailwinds, who do a really nice batch of package holidays at relatively reasonable costs.

    I have a really special bike. It will handle the long ride over the Pacific very well. :)

    (Yes, poor phrasing on my part. Many apologies.)

    Um...

    I'm the wife in this particular relationship. Jus' sayin, coz you peoples always assume that fellow posters are of the male persuasion, which is not always the case. :)

    That's sort of the plan. Sadly the spouse is not yet in see-the-world mode, but I have no problem with travelling alone.

    I am refusing to call it retirement, Charlie. I'm too young to retire. :)

    But then if I'm not looking for another job, what else can I call it?

    And I find 26 years pretty staggering. More than...

    Freedom 55

    Five years after qualifying to join this forum, I'm opening my parachute from work next week after a staggering 26 years. No job to go to, and I'm far from convinced that I want a full-time job to go...

    Can you change that bottom wicking layer when you get to work, and put on a dry base layer? You'll start your outdoor work with dry clothes, and you will stay warmer.

    You mean your mountain bike does not have something invested in the outcome?

    I'm a much slower rider than you are, but my best starts to the riding year came after a winter of twice-a-week spin classes. It really kept the biking muscles in trim. Second best was after the...

    Spin classes help keep me motivated enough to ride for 30-40-50 minutes on a stationary bike. If I try that one at home, alone, I get bored after about five minutes, and I don't ride as hard.
